Breisidis Prescott v Bayan Jargal, Fight Report


Recommended Posts




Friday night at Mohegan Sun Arena, fringe top ten junior welterweight contender Breidis Prescott and highly touted middleweight prospect Demetrius Andrade made their successful, albeit anticlimactic returns to the ring on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights. Both fighters looked impressive individually, although much to the dismay of the crowd in attendance, their opponents offered little challenge in return. Both Prescott and Andrade , returning to the ring and the Northeast for the first time in eight months respectively, cruised to victory, paving the way for intriguing matchups in the square circle in the near future.


In the main event, Columbia’s Prescott (24-2-0, 19 KOs) faced off against tough Mongolian brawler Bayan Jargal (15-2-3, 10 KOs). Prescott, known as “The Khanqueror” due to his high profile victory over British sensation Amir Khan, and ranked #11 by the WBA, had yet to follow up the Khan knockout in 2009 with an impressive win over a big name opponent. On Friday, Prescott hoped to captivate boxing fans with a skillful showing, and begin the rise to the top to once again fight with the WBA Titleist Khan.


Mixing moments of little action followed by hard hook combinations set up by the jab of Prescott, the opening frame represented the pattern which would ensue for nearly every round in the fight. At times throughout his career, Prescott would carelessly rush in and get countered by his opponent, but from the first round onward, it was clear Prescott had learned to fight with more self-control. The Colombian picked his shots wisely, and his improved footwork limited opportunities for Jargal to connect with power punches.

Good performance by Prescott. I think this guy will serve as a gate-keeper for the division. More like a test for guys aspiring to get to the top than getting to the top himself. Although with the gazillion world titles out there it's always possible he picks one up someday.
